Brigus Junction

(Population in 1976 was 80)

Brigus Junction is the community that grew up as a result of the building of a branch line of the Newfoundland railway to the community of Brigus (from which it takes its name) in 1898 and which was extended to Grates Cove and Bay de Verde c.1915 for a total of 85 km (53 mi) of branch railway line from Brigus Junction to Bay de Verde. In 1885 the Newfoundland Railway Company obtained a crown land grant at Brigus Junction (JLC: 1886) and the same year an E.F. Kelly acquired more land and timber rights at Brigus Junction (JLC: 1886).
